Avoid Perth petrol price rise

This announcement is for: 
ConsumerBusiness / companyMotor industry

The average cost of unleaded petrol is set to increase by around 14 cents per litre (cpl) to 126.7 cpl tomorrow, so FuelWatch is encouraging Perth drivers to fill up today to save money.

FuelWatch advises that on Tuesday 5 January 2016, most Puma, BP, Caltex and Coles Express sites are increasing their ULP prices to 129.9 cpl - an increase of 20 cpl by Puma, 18 cpl by BP and Caltex and 17 cpl by Coles Express. The majority of Caltex Woolworths sites are increasing their ULP price to 128.9 cpl.

Perth’s weekly petrol price cycle results in prices, on average, being cheapest on Sunday and Monday and at their most expensive on Tuesday and Wednesday – that’s why we recommend filling up today.

If you need to fill up tomorrow, use FuelWatch as there are still 35 sites selling below 117 cpl. The difference between the highest and lowest priced sites is 24 cpl, which means you can save up to $14 on a 60 litre tank of fuel.

Monday’s cheapest ULP is available for:

  • 106.8 cpl at Puma Bellevue in the East;
  • 105.7 cpl at Puma Burswood in the South; and
  • 105.7 cpl at Puma First Avenue Mt Lawley in the North.

Tuesday’s cheapest ULP will be available for:

  • 109.7 cpl at United Roleystone in the East;
  • 105.9 cpl at BP Baldivis Southbound Travel Centre and BP Baldivis Northbound Travel Centre in the South; and
  • 108.9 cpl at United Osborne Park in the North.

Drivers can head to the mobile compatible www.fuelwatch.wa.gov.au site to find the cheapest fuel in their area. Log on after 2.30pm each day to compare today’s and tomorrow’s prices. You can also sign up for free emails along with the 37,500 others who benefit from daily updates. Alternatively, phone 1300 30 40 54.
